  1. System Setup and Connection
    I am currently running a 6.1 HT system with a Pioneer Elite VSX-72TXV and am curious about using my Arcam AVR300 as a second amp for the fronts. I’m assuming I would run the preouts to the Arcam, with it in Direct Mode. I’m concerned about possible phase issues, though I’m sure that’s just the...

    Please don't take this post incorrectly... It's an observation I made while trying to help a friend. If you have a set of speakers both Left, Right, and Center which use identical speaker drivers is the crossover build the same regardless of how the center channel is positioned? ie. Horizontal...
  3. Samsung
    When starting up the TV, there is a vertical white line on the right of the screen. Sometimes there is a horizontal white line on the top part of the middle of the screen. I am not able to pull up any menus when the TV is on.
  4. Hitachi
    For a couple of days my HITACHI LCD TV has problems displaying images on one side of the screen. The left shows some colorful vertical lines while the other half is fine. Somebody advised to just unplug the TV for five minutes. I did that but the problem remained. This is not going on all the...

    Yeah I had to flip the center sideways vertical it sounds much better than horizontal but seems too high for full-screen movies. Why does voice just sound wrong when Center channel is flipped Horizontal normal placement sounds wrong? Sadly flipping it vertical is not an option for full...
  6. Samsung
    I can't post pics because my iPhone is also being repaired but tonight my Samsung DLP TV just started showing these black vertical lines. They're on every input, even the menu. The picture underneath is still perfect but I can't get rid of the lines. The lamp is only 3 months old. Any ideas?
  7. Manufactured Screens
    I have two vertical lines showing up on my 133" Da Lite screen. They are most noticeable at an angle around a 30 degrees. I have seen these I think on commercial screens. What causes them and can I treat them? Thanks!

    I have been in Computers all my life, just haven't done a lot in TV repair beyond some minor alignments etc. I got the Service manual from one of the links here and have been reading it. Here is the issue. In both standard and HD mode, my picture on the screen is to wide and to tall. I...
  9. System Setup and Connection
    Center Speaker (Designed as Vertical, can I use Horizontally?) I have a budget Home Theater system. With the help of some knowledgeable people on this forum you helped me upgrade my speakers. I have 4 Sony SSf-5000 Floor Standing speakers for fronts and backs, and was looking for a Sony center...
  10. Panasonic / Technics
    Hey All, My 65" Viera just developed what I thought was a thin red vertical line about 1/3 of the way in from the right side of the panel, but upon closer inspection it appears to be an approximately 3" wide vertical bar of what I can only describe as "odd" distortion, with the very right hand...

  12. Home Theater Projectors
    Hi, I have an Optoma TH1060P which was working great and then all of the sudden, when I turn it on, the screen appears in bands. The background color is blue, so the effect on the screen is just vertical blue stripes. The menu appears in bands as well. This occurs without any input so I know...
  13. Toshiba
    My brother has this Toshiba 46RF350U set with vertical lines that he can't get to go away... He spoke with a guy at a local repair shop: I mainly want to verify that there is likely no hope and its probably not worth trying to fix. It's about 5 years old and well out of warranty.

    Zaph Audio ZA5.5tt build. Can't say I have seen anyone build these? And so it begins. 3/4" MDF all cut. I am welcome to all advice.
  17. Home Audio Speakers
    From what I have read "If possible" it is better to have a vertical center channel vice a more common horizontal one. However, I wonder how many non-kit/DIY speaker companies will sell their speakers Each vice in pairs. So if you had an acoustically transparent screen and the ability to put...

    I love the entertainment center I have now except that it just doesn't have enough clearance for a good sub under the TV. I can fit one that is 18" tall, but I really need 20". Since I am looking to replace the entertainment center, I want to shoot for 24" of clearance to accommodate anything...
  19. Toshiba
    After studying forum and looking through possible causes I decided to try replace STKs. I checked all resistors around it and they looked good and the same Omhs, so I believe resitors are fine. I ordered two STKs and replaced these, but there is no change in image at all - it is still sorta...
  20. REW Forum
    Hi. Can someone please confirm the orientation of the ECM 8k mic for use with REW? I've been told that it should be pointed vertically when measuring? Is this correct? I've been using it horizontally. Thanks, Bob
